In 1908 Richard Gerstl painted his final self portrait after an affair with Arnold Schönberg's wife. This affair, and Gerstl's subsequent death, inspired the Austrian composer to write one of his finest pieces of work. This monologue brings to life the emotions of real, unrequited love as we meet with Gerstl before he puts his brush to canvas.
A teenage boy goes missing in New York City, discovering what (could have) happened to him the filmmakers go to Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island to talk to people who knew him.
The film was screened at ICA London as part of Emerging London Film Directors collective.
